This is a set of postcards featuring three Black women from a series of Black history month. The subjects I chose are not who are typically talked about during the month and that is intentional. I hope with my series of illustrations, I can be one of many artists expanding the consciousness of Black lives and the Black experience. We all love Rosa, Malcolm, and Martin, but there are so many more people we should know. These women are:
Betty Reid Soskin- Oldest African American park ranger
These are heading for your fridge, art directors, and your friends fridge. The drummer boy post card comes from Short Story 12 and the colorful portrait is that of electronic/jazz/ hip hop/ genreless musician Jneiro Jarel. Both are from seperate series, but if you’ve been following me you already know that. Check the comments…to win one.
